The DeltaVision OMX V4 Blaze 3D-SIM microscope is an advanced multimode, super-resolution microscope system.

Imaging options:

  • SIM: structured illumination microscopy for multicolor 3D super-resolution imaging. Gives a resolution down to 110 nm lateral and 330 nm axial.
  • Localization microscopy (STORM): 2D super-resolution imaging with a resolution down to 20 nm.
  • Conventional mode: ultra fast widefield imaging, with temperature and CO2 control for live cell imaging.
  • TIRF: Total Internal Reflection Fluoresence, for enhanced signal-to-noise imaging of the surface of a cell/specimen.
  • PhotoKinetics/Photoactivation imaging system for photoactivation, FRAP, and FRET imaging methods.

Other features of the OMX: 6-color solid state illumination and 6 lasers (405 nm, 445 nm, 488 nm, 514 nm, 568 nm, and 642 nm), UltimateFocus Hardware Autofocus System, three high speed sCMOS cameras. Objectives: 60X NA 1.42 oil PLAPON6 PSF, 60X NA 1.49 TIRF, and 60X NA 1.30 Sil.
